As every good cowboy does, Glenn Joseph Pittsley, “Bub”, rode off into the sunset on April 28, 2020. Glenn was the oldest son born to Glenn and Betty Pittsley on November 10, 1950. He was a retired Chief Petty Officer and Hospital Corpsman in the Navy in which he proudly served 21 years. Even then after, he worked as a Radiologic Technologist until 2006. He loved to watch rodeos, especially Bull Riding, he loved to attend country music concerts and sporting events, he enjoyed collecting coins and pins, he loved to fish, camp, and hunt. Glenn had a quick wit and sense of humor about him, and you had to pay attention, so he didn’t get one over on you. He loved to tease, but it was all in good humor. Glenn was a devoted family man. He was a loving and affectionate husband for 42 years, proud father, grandfather, son, brother, and friend. You’d be lucky to have him as a neighbor. He had a huge heart and was very generous in giving alms to the poor, the church, service workers; and he avidly supported fundraisers and multiple charity organizations. Glenn participated in the American Legion Post #83 in Merced, CA, the Lion’s Club, the Kiwanis Club, the North American Hunting Club as a Life Member, the Special Olympics as a volunteer in Washington, and was an Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts. Among all his great attributes, Glenn also was a devoted patriot often sporting red, white and blue colors and a US Navy, Retired ball cap donned with pins. He always thanked members of the Armed Forces for their service to their country, and you could catch him sharing a story or two about his time in the Navy or working on the farm when he grew up in North Dakota. He was also “tough enough to wear pink” to spread awareness for Breast Cancer after the passing of his sister, Della Norby. He will be greatly missed and forever loved as he touched the lives of many people throughout his life.
Glenn is survived by his wife, Merlita; two daughters, Gelina (Eric) and Michelle; grandchildren, Aaliyah and Shannon Jr.; father, Glenn (Rosalie); brothers, Jimmy (Kristy) and Donny; sisters, Karen (Dale), Ellen (Jim), and Nancy (Dennis); sisters-in-law, Juliet and Ruby (Lito); brother-in-law Ed (Lodie); sisters-in-law Sandee and Mary; brother-in-law Dwight and numerous nieces and nephews.

Glenn was preceded in death by his mother, Betty Pittsley; his brothers Leroy and David; and his sisters, Della and Louise.

To our family
Bubba and I were just two years apart in age. As our Dad's Robert and Uncle Glen were the oldest of the family, the Cousin's had a special bond in the Pittsley Family. We enjoyed growing up and visiting each other.
We a grew up and went off on different adventures but always stayed in touch. We were in several states. I got to travel from Coeurd'Alene, Idaho to Watford City, ND in 2020. It was Bub's 50th class reunion. We spent a few days together remembering old times and catching up. Bub and his brother's and Sister's now gone will always be remembered in my heart.
Thank you Bub for your Service and Rest Easy. Keep watch over us till we meet again.
My his Family keep him in their hearts.
May you have Fair winds and Following Seas

Love you Cousin Glen-Bubba

We are so sorry to hear of Bubbies passing. He was my neighbor for our growing up years until I married and left. I was at your place about every week at least. Time sure goes fast.
